According to local press, Addoha Group’s Cameroonian subsidiary, Cimaf Cameroun, is confident that production will begin at its new €20 million cement facility in February 2014. The business venture in Cameroon is one of the Moroccan company’s first international investment projects. It will have an estimated production capacity of between 500 000 and 1 million tpa and will create around 200 jobs.
The plant, located in Bonabéri, Douala, produced its first bag of cement in November 2013 and bagging tests were successfully conducted at the facility in January 2014. The company is due to complete a final inspection of the plant’s turbines before the official production launch.
The retail price of the plant’s cement is reported to be approximately CFA4500 per unit, the same as the price of the cement sold by Lafarge’s Cameroonian subsidiary, Cimenteries du Cameroun (Cimencam).
